Oh and I feel this post warrants a bit of an fyi, lol. Like me, Lisa looooves her F’words, so buckle up as she takes us on an exciting ride to get our businesses fired up to the next level!

How to Level UP with Lisa

Warning, juicy language ahead that is not appropriate for young eyes … unless you roll like this Mama and wear t-shirts that say, “Good moms say bad words”.

Seriously, this final tip for my three-part spring clean series is simple and powerful, and when used consistently, will change your life.

Looking to Up-Level Your Life?

Check in with yourself when you’re making decisions and use this mantra like a north star to guide you through each and every decision you make.

If it isn’t a Fuck Yeah, It’s a Hell No!

Trust me, this works every, single, time. Think about it, if you continue to show up with the same, you get the same.

How You Can Level-Up Using This Method

Checking in with yourself before making decisions is in itself a powerful habit. And taking stock of how your energy, body and thoughts respond by waiting for that inner ding of Fuck Yeah!! Or, honouring that meh feeling that equals a resounding Hell No!!

Using this method to filter asks of your time, opportunities, and even financial investments, will support you to level up into the high performance zone in any area of your life.

Level-Up Examples

Looking to hire a VA and you find yourself struggling to ignore that feeling in your gut that they aren’t the right fit because a friend referred them and they seem nice? It’s a Hell No, not to their face of course. Be gracious and kind about it.

A contact asks you to join a committee but you just promised yourself you were going to scale back on your commitments so you could work ON your business and create space for some much needed self-care. Another Hell No!!

You’re looking for a new business coach and they make you feel seen, heard and understood and like anything is possible. You’re beyond excited for the future. That’s a Fuck Yeah!

Trust me, you’re not here for just okay, or mediocre. This precious life you are living is yours and you can do whatever you want with it.

Take the velocity of spring energy and Fuck Yeah! all over your life.
